Nissan will reveal its future vision which will merge both real and virtual worlds for the ultimate connected-car experience at the CES.
Dubbed ‘Invisible-to-Visible’, or I2V for short, the technology is created through Nissan Intelligent Mobility and will demonstrate the possible future of driving to CES visitors through an interactive 3D immersion experience at the brand’s display.
The premise is that I2V will support drivers by merging information from external sensors as well as internal sensors with data from the cloud. This should allow the system to track the vehicle’s immediate surroundings as well as predict what could be ahead, including behind buildings and around corners.
Guidance may also be provided via an interactive, human-like format such as an avatar. Tapping into the virtual world could provide extensive possibilities for service and communication to make driving more convenient, comfortable and exciting.
Tetsuro Ueda, an expert leader at the Nissan Research Center, said, “By helping you see the invisible, I2V enhances your confidence and makes driving more enjoyable.”
“The interactive features create an experience that’s tailored to your interests and driving style so that anyone can enjoy using it in their own way.”
Visitors at CES will use augmented-reality goggles inside a demonstration cockpit with 3D interfaces and displays to get a unique understanding of how the technology could function.
A series of scenarios including a city tour, locating an unoccupied parking space at a busy shopping centre, a miserable wet day outside transforming to a sunny day inside the car, chasing a professional driver avatar to improve driving skills and using I2V to see through buildings and around corners are on the menu to experience at the display.
